Meeting four times a week, during period 7, and using the principals of yoga, Pilates and classical ballet, our goal is to help the students grow as dancers, artists, performers and most importantly as confident and self-assured young women. The dance performance ensemble participates in jazz, hip hop and choreography classes weekly.
The ensemble is an integral part of the fall musical and will also perform at school rallies, Comedy Sportz matches and La Reina sporting events. It also appears in the Spring Arts Showcase. This class counts towards fulfillment of the LRHS physical education requirements. These dancers also earn variable activity points and Thespian points.
Junior High Dance
Junior High dancers meet during lunch to learn hip hop and jazz performance numbers. The group performs at rallies, La Reina sporting events and at the fine arts showcase. Many also choose to participate in the fall musical. These dancers earn variable activity points.
Studio at School
Students may choose to take their studio level dance classes on the La Reina campus. The list of classes includes: hip-hop 1 & 2, jazz, and lyrical. These classes meet weekly after school. This class is extra-curricular and does not count toward fulfillment of the P.E. requirements or receive any variable activity points.
Student choreography is honored at La Reina. We seek to give dancers a forum to express themselves through choreography. Student choreographers work with fellow students to produce lunch time dance events. To date, students have choreographed dances in the styles of hip-hop, jazz and ballet. Some of these choreography projects have been seen in the fall musical and the spring fine arts showcase. The choreographers and dancers earn variable activity points and Thespian points.
